Busdriver's interview up on

By Daniel Robert Epstein
Feb 8, 2007

Busdriver is a unique rapper much in the vein of ultra-talented rappers like RJD2 and Blueprint. His previous albums were low budget affairs that highlighted Busdriver's freestyle talent. But for his new album, Roadkill Overcoat, Busdriver wanted a cleaner more produced sound and that's why he recruited producers DJ Nobody, Boom Bip and Bianca Casady of CocoRosie to help him out.

Daniel Robert Epstein: What are you up to today?

Busdriver: I'm recovering from shooting all weekend. I've been shooting little video teasers for an upcoming album so now I'm just laying low.

DRE:What happens in the video?

B:There are a few different sketches and I don't know what I did for most of them. For one scene I had to smash a guitar and then the production crew pieced it together. Then I had to play the guitar and lip sync outside in 40 degree weather in not much clothing for an hour. That did me in.
